FACING THE FACTS: Domestic Violence and the Church
August 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A follow up to our event in November last year, Facing the Facts: Domestic Violence and the Church will take a look at how the church can and must act when Domestic and Family Violence is discovered within its membership. We will be hearing from Christian experts from Anglicare, BaptistCare and parish ministry who will help us to consider the difference between Domestic Violence and relationship problems, learn how to respond when stories of Domestic Violence arise, tell us about programs for men who use violence and speak to how men in particular can work to hold one another accountable. We’ll hear stories about how DV situations were handled within the church. We want this night to be a safe space to speak about this very important issue for church communities to confront and deal with a vigilance consistent with a Christian faith.
Our speakers for this event are:
Lynda Dunstan (Family and Domestic Violence Advisor, Anglicare Community Services)
Bruce Chan (Manager of Hope Street Wooloomooloo, BaptistCare)
Martin Kemp (Senior Minister, Waitara Anglican Church)
Location: Christ Church Gladesville
Date: Monday 20 August 2018
